The ELEEP Network podcast series focuses on current developments in climate and energy policy on both sides of the Atlantic, delivering in-depth discussion and expert interviews on a range of pressing topics. The latest four episodes feature insights from the June 2017 ELEEP conference on "Tipping Points - Finding the Energy Climate Balance," including keynote talks by some of the brightest minds in the field. Ecologic Institute's Nick Evans produced the podcast series. The episodes can be listened to via stream on SoundCloud and by subscribing to the ELEEP Network podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.
On 6 January 2017 ELEEP released a new podcast episode featuring a conversation with Edith Bayer (Associate, Regulatory Assistance Project) on "Efficiency First", the organizing principle that prioritizes energy efficiency and demand response investments whenever they would cost less or deliver more than building new supply or grid infrastructure.
The Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy Network (ELEEP) is a joint project of the Ecologic Institute and the Atlantic Council. Launched in fall 2011, ELEEP is a dynamic, membership-only forum for the exchange of ideas, policy solutions, best-practices, and professional development for early and mid-career American and European leaders working on environmental and energy issues. ELEEP currently has about 100 members, split between the US and the EU. Members debate topics of the day online and meet regularly for study tours and other face-to-face activities. ELEEP is financially supported by the European Union, the Robert Bosch Stiftung, and the Allianz Foundation for North America.
As part of the ELEEP Network’s ongoing investigation of the changing energy landscape in Europe and the United States, ten ELEEP members participated in a study tour to Denver, Colorado and San Francisco, California from 19 to 24 August 2012. This trip served as a counterpoint to earlier trips to Germany/Austria in August 2011 and Germany/Denmark in March 2012, augmenting the European perspective with current information from the United States.
